Photographer's Note

This is the pictures that I have planned to show here for a few years but I put off many times.
I was in Bruges four years ago. I walked around a lot but what I was interested most was the canal to Damme. We have seen so many wonderful views of the canal by John so I wanted also to try. John makes his bike trip, I can't ride a bike so I went on a boat trip by Lamme Goedzak. It was very nice but I was a bit disappointed with my pictures.

Here the view of the bikers going along the canal. I imagined that it could be John :).

Damme is a municipality located in the Belgian province of West Flanders, six kilometres northeast of Brugge (Bruges). In the 13th century, Damme was the port for Bruges, to which it was linked by the river Reie. The river has now been canalised into the long, straight, treelined and picturesque Damse Vaart, which continues across the Dutch border to Sluis. The most popular ways of travelling to Damme are by canal boat that runs during the summer high season or all year round by bus or bicycle.

Two Workshops will follow.
In WS#1 - the well-known view of the mill and bridge in Damme.
In WS#2 - On the way back to Bruges.

Not as good as John's pictures but I hope you will be interested anyway. And better to see them in a large format.

I am very worried about our friend Paja. He wrote how sick and weak he was feeling and he hasn't posted anything for a few days. Let's hope he will recover soon.
